Uganda recently signed a bill that further bans homosexuality. According to CNN, a man was burned to death for being gay shortly after.
The bill's original 2009 version, named "Kill The Gays," went as far as calling for the death penalty for certain homosexual acts; that provision was shelved following international furore.
Under its latest iteration, anyone who conducts marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples faces seven years behind bars. Failure to report homosexual activity to police is also criminalized. Doctors who treat gays, landlords who rent them property and those suspected of being gay are subject to five-year prison terms under the bill.
Anyone who offers support to homosexuals will also be committing a criminal offence, which can reportedly extend to counselling.
Though homosexuality has already been illegal in the South-east African nation, some argued this bill needed to be passed to safeguard against Western values.
